Rumour now has it that Ipi is out to get a B.O. of this regiment in revenge for Khan Gul. I don’t know about this, but I expect it will become rather dangerous round here during the next fortnight.

All officers passing through Bannu, by road or rail, have to report to Bannu Brigade, so a notice in the Club says. All leave stopped, in and ex-India.
